Great White Shark

An apex predator among the coastal surface waters where it hunts, the great white shark is one of the largest shark species. These silent killers glide gracefully through the ocean, always in search of their next meal.

Great White Shark4


Source Bestiary pg. 291
Sharks of all shapes and sizes have stalked the oceans, largely unchanged, since primordial times. They are efficient, ruthless predators with multiple rows of razor-sharp teeth capable of rending prey in an instant. Their uncanny ability to smell blood in the water means sharks might show up at any scene of aquatic carnage.

Sidebar - Additional Lore Becoming Meateaters

Contrary to popular belief, sharks are not particularly fond of humanoids as meals. Only under the right conditions—such as when food is scarce or the shark mistakes its victim for a seal—will a shark attack a swimmer or small boat. Such occasions are traumatic enough for survivors to perpetuate the myth of shark as maneater.
